9780786463893: In Strangers' Arms: The Magic of the Tango

The tango is easily the most iconic dance of the last century, its images as familiar as an old friend. But are they the whole story? Peeling back the poster propaganda that has always characterized the tango publicly, this intimate study shows the invisible heart of the dance and the culture that raised it. Drawing on direct experience and conversations with dancers, it reveals much about the role of the tango in Argentinean culture.

From the Author:

 
"In Strangers' Arms: The Magic of the Tango" was written by a bicultural North American and the Argentine author who is a dancer and is the only book in English which was endorsed by the Buenos Aires National Academy of Tango.
 
The dance, with its rebellious intimate embrace, improvisation, and codes of anonymity, broke all existing norms in the dance world. Like tango, this book does not fit any mold either: It is at once a textbook, a trade book, and a book written in first person.  So for its audience of dance scholars it can be read in sequential order and for the audience of dance enthusiasts - as stand alone, short story chapters.
 
The book functions on many layers: "the manifest" about the people, the places and the poetry of the tango, - "the psychological" about the grip tango exerts on dancers and its life changing effects, - "the anthropological" which records the lifestyle of dancers who are perpetual tango travelers looking for strangers-dancing partners, - "the socio-economic" realities of our times which gives impetus to its popularity, - "the counterculture" that speaks volumes about the tragedy of our needs and angst in the twenty-first century, and "the universal" dimension that transcends it all.
 
Professor Eric Van Young of UCSD referred to ISA's fusion in his endorsement of the book: [it is] "equal parts history, memoir, ethnography, and travelogue." 
 
As history, it presents documented information that has not yet reached the printed page of any book in English- not even academic ones.
 
As travelogue it offers the visitor to Buenos Aires insight into the soul of the city and its paradoxes.
 
As an ethnography it reports, for the first time, field research conducted inside the tango world (with the anthropologist's tools: interviews and participant observation) both in the United States and in Buenos Aires.
 
With numerous personal vignettes, the book shows that tango is not just a dance but also an extension of the way of being for its people now, and for the people who lived when it was created in the early 1880s.
 
Consumers of tango books are used to reading stories about the authors that happened inside the world of tango. Not this one: The protagonist of the book is the tango, not the author.

From the Inside Flap:
